Total-E-Bound erotic publisher is about to add some spicy details to classic novels by the likes of Charlotte Bronte and Jane Austen. The old characters will go through a lot of new sexual experiences, which have remained between the lines up until now.Such books a Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Bronte’s Jane Eyre and Conan Doyle’s A Study in Scarlet will be rewritten with erotic scenes and released in the near future.

 

“We’ll show you the scenes that you always wanted to see but were never allowed … The old fashioned pleasantries and timidity have all been stripped away, quite literally. You didn’t really think that these much loved characters only held hands and pecked cheeks, did you?” the publisher says.The rewrites will give the readers a peep at the intimate life between Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester, and sexual experiences between Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson in A Study in Scarlet and in Northanger Abbey, Catherine will be introduced to a new world of sex with Henry.

According to The Guardian, even Jules Verne’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea will endure a revision, with a romantic story sparkling between Professor Pierre Aronnax and sailor and master harpooner Ned Land.

Revision of classical novels seems a great plan for the publisher to earn some money, considering the success proved by EL James’s erotic Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy.

So, um, yeah, this is what has become of the Fifty Shades of Grey installments, has it?  While I may not always fall in love with the classics, there are just some things in life that I really don’t think they need to mess with.  Classic books being one of them.  Heck, why don’t you just paint the Mona Lisa nude, then.

While I’ve read my fair share of, eh hem, fiction….. Dabbled in writing it too as it is fun, this is just too weird.  What’s even more odd was that I was discussing the lack of enjoying most Jane Austen books with Cassie over on Books and Bowel Movements. I seriously don’t think Mr. Darcy and whoever messing between the sheets is what is going to make me want to read the story any more than the way it is.  I plan on getting around to reading Pride and Prejudice, but I don’t need that.  Same for Jane Eyre.  As for Sherlock Holmes, yeah I know they have alluded to the fact that he might have been gay, but I really don’t need to know.  They push all those bounderies with the films and shows, why do they need to change it in the books.

Something is seriously wrong here.
